it is less costly and in the environment with political instability, organized crime and then talks a lot about the focus of the national community much beyond the institutional capacity building and strengthening the cooperation. in mali the risks -- i hear a lot of talk and, the problem is not just you cannot just rely on the self-proclaimed representatives of all of the groups in northern mali. they are a minority. so one component among many. so any inclusive political solution should include but also other ethnic groups whether it be me the majority obviously or other ethnic actors. it has to be all inclusive. number two, there is the risk that we try to put nicely. it's exactly what others are waiting for them. they are just waiting to strike, for the opportunity which, and there are risks, right? we know based on the behavior of the forces especially with white skinned arabs. we know the african forces in which report they are by themselves these are one of the most feared for years and who they rely very heavily on them which is good because its, you know, it is the same climate s

, they will cripple our ability to grow our economy and provide an environment where all americans have the opportunity to lead healthy, safe and productive lives. that is what really brings us together here today because sequestration is about more than numbers on a ledger. there are real people behind these numbers and their lives and livelihoods are on the line. these cuts have consequences and every american will pay the price. with fewer food inspectors we will be more susceptible to foodborne illness. we will be at greater risk of deadly disease outbreak as public health laboratories close. with fewer air traffic controllers flights will be curtailed. classroom size will increase as teachers are laid off. national parks will close up. we will be less safe with fewer police on the streets and we will wait longer to cure debilitating diseases like cancer and alzheimer's. today ndd united is sending two members of congress and the white house a 72 page letter signed by 3200 national, state and local organizations including those represented here today to stop the political brinksmans
, back in 2011 and determined there would be no significant impacts on the environment. that's what the administration determined in their own nepa process. and that raises the other point. the white house says well, we don't want to get ahead of the process, but the president effectively abandoned the process more than a year ago when he halted the project by executive action. had he not the state department in keeping with the usual process would have issued a decision on the permit after four years by december, 2011, according to a letter secretary clinton sent to me in august, 2011. i worked toward approval of the keystone x.l. pipeline, first as governor of north dakota and now as a u.s. senator because i believe it is just the kind of project that will grow our economy and create the jobs our country so desperately needs, and it will do so with good environmental stewardship. at the same time, it will reduce our dependence on the middle east for oil, which is what the american people have desired for decades. the keystone x.l. pipeline project is long overdue. for the benefit

[applause] in addition it transforming education, we must continue to reform government. take the waste, fraud and abuse commission for example. so far they identified nearly $456 million worth of savings. our reforms allow -- [applause] our reforms allow state government to focus on efficiency so taxpayers get great service without needless spending and waste. our reforms also give schools and local governments flexibility to make management choices, to improve their communities while saving money. for example, our technical schools are saving millions of dollars by making simple, common sense changes to instructor schedules and overtime policies. in race keen -- racine county they're saving money with a program that allows non-violent jail inmates to do maintenance work like mowing grass and shoveling snow. and much of the work being done is finding creativ
, college custom education, the environment. there's more about electrify 10 seasons of deportation than about upward mobility and modernizing two shins. how do you do with it? to raise. sensitively as he put forward proposals the public leaves will address these problems and then you've got to stand out some of the rougher edges and stop the what governor bobby jindal calls a soup party to senate candidate in the 2012 election with worries about and that cost is two seats. and then there are broader issues, ways in which the republican party sometimes speaks coming to send a signal that we really interested in getting. is a tonal issue that republicans need to address and i'm glad eric cantor is doing this. and others like marco rubio and paul ryan are doing the same thing. >> host: peter wehner joining us with the republican party.

. so for the sake of our nation's economy, for our national security and the world's environment, we must strive to produce the largest possible percentage of our oil needs domestically and endeavor to obtain any of our imports from neighbors and strong allies whether they be canada, whether they be mexico, tapping our potential and restoring trust in our people will be a breakthrough in itself. now, within our report we've set out a number of important goals, and these are generally centered around where we need to be by 2020. >> that was a portion of senator murkowski's remarks. you can watch the entire event on c-span's video library. and today here on c-span2 live coverage from the floor of the senate coming in at 2 eastern for general speeches and at 5:30 voting to advance a bill reauthorizing the violence against women act. that's a domestic violence law that expired in 2011. before the senate comes in, though, in about half an hour, a look at immigration policy recommendations that have been proposed recently. this is from today's "washington journal." >> host: weekly at this
schools, but also charter schools. a competitive environment where schools compete for students rather than the other way around gives every child from the inner city of washington to the streets of los angeles an equal chance at a greater destiny. now, one of our priorities this year and a house would be to move heaven and earth to fix her education system for the most vulnerable. and when those children graduate from high school, we must expand their choices, and college has got to be an option. in 1980, the average cost of college was roughly $8000 a year. today, it is over 20,000, and less than 60% of the students who enroll in a for your program graduate within six years. clearly, something is broken. according to president obama's former jobs council, by 2020 would be a million and have jobs without the college graduates to fill them. while there is a persistent unmet demand of four to 500,000 job openings and health care sector alone. recent reports indicate that there are not enough skilled applicants to fill the jobs in the booming natural gas industry. now, suppose colleges p
that with the baby boom generation and the new health care environment there is a shortage of health care workers of the various levels of physicians and certainly everything else the number of areas that are medically served appropriately. there are issues of getting in the hospitals comes a there are a number of issues and is also hard when you come in on a place like mine on the exchange of the visa to go into the research field and took me several years to make my way out to that because of the kind fiction that is placed. as we have always advocated that when you go through the immigration part of a specially the skilled immigration part, there should be a great deal of affordability and market based capitalistic system and gravitate with the schools and where the demands are and where they can contribute best and health care is no exception to that. the privilege of working in the office on the program of which i am a graduate i would say and to provide service in the backlog at the end of the overall great ideas and it should be a lot of. >> thank you. when you talk about agriculture we ha
's a problem. >> economists always talk about. what is going on here than the see this environment changing in a fundamental way? >> what is confused as there are two issues. do you want a particular subsidy spending like aiden the you have got and do you wanted in the tax cut? actually, do you want the tax code in the budget cents and you want the irs to administer it? the first issue is whether you want the provision which seems to me as the same issue you have a threat spending treks spending. my action is the one item i do say. low income levels have given what is going on an income and to -- distribution. i don't like the budget accounting because it feels like it is a tax cut when it is equivalent to direct it expenditure, so it makes it easier to enact and we should recognize the same effects as the direct span the chair. most of the subsidies. i think the irs probably gets it administered as best they can. it largely relates to this budget accounting concept that it looks like a negative tax and therefore is not the same thing as larger -- it appears to be smaller government when is
for what they believe. >> it's how you teach an old dog new tricks. >> most of us are in our environment how we were raised, and we learn from them. i have said there's five promises every adult should make. the first is a child should have a loving and caring adults in their life and the second is they should have a healthy start to read the child should have an education. the child should have a safe place. the second one is a promise you cannot teach. they should grow to be loving and caring adult and give something back. the usually emulate that who they were raised by and have their fellow suit. in the political process it is hard for anyone of you looking today to try to find a hero that says i'm willing to make a vote. hopefully we will give political leaders and policy makers the courage to say i am willing to sit down and talk. i'm not worried about guilt by conversation. even though i might disagree or think that you are not right for the left field i want to hear what you are coming from. maybe we can find some commonality. i am going to make a tough vote and if someone says y
are quite concerned about the handoff that occurs in a post-acute environment where, essentially, there's no particular incentive for the acute care to really track what occurs when someone's post--acute. -- post-acute. recent attention to readmission strategy and whether we're seeing too many readmissions and really a disincentive to do so. but it's really the much broader question which is how do you encourage the full full array of providers that take care of a particular patient to begin to coordinate in much more closely in terms of the utilization of servicesesome so bundling i think is really as some of us think of an attempt to try and look at those incentives and to try and do a better job of helping patients manage throughout that full array of services so that from a preadmit to an acute care or episode to a postacute management over time that there's more attention given to those handoffs and more coordination in terms of the sharing of information so that, essentially, the patient isn't having to sort of reestablish the data set every time they see a different provider whet
environment of the last nine years, international best practice, what do we know? >> interesting question. one thing to throw at is we tend to talk about immigration policy but actually u.s. tax policy towards expatriates' is incredibly convoluted and a huge problem particularly if you believe as i do that the circulation of talent having americans live in other countries and bring skills and experience they diner in those places is a valuable things july encourage us to think in terms of net worth and transfer of knowledge more comprehensively but the point about best practices people often cite canada and australia and a lot of learning between those societies as well but what is noteworthy is canada has incredibly draconian emigration policies as relates to their guest worker program etc. so we tend to think of canada as squishy and progressive and also admit more immigrants, then united states does. one reason this has worked as a political settlement is there's rigorous immigration enforcement but in my view it is unimaginable. even someone who tends to think we have fairly tight immigrat
it is $125,000 as we have added so much more equipment for the environment. the good news is it is much better for the environment. but there has been a cost associated with that. so, costs are up and the lending is not what it once was. so we have many -- i showed you the small fleets are not growing the number of trucks they operate. in part the reason they are doing that, and i also showed you the age has gone up significantly so they are not worth as much as a 3-year-old truck, so we have many small fleets having to sell used trucks to afford one new one. part of that is because they cannot get financing for as much so they have to put more down. the of a thing on this that i have seen over the last two years is lease financing used to be 10%. any trucks that you would acquire in a year especially the smaller fleets would be maybe 10% of the trucks would be from the finance leasing and the rest of the purchases. today is 30 to 40% because it is the only way that they can get it. they can't get all of the financing that they need for the purchasers comes of they are turning more to t
